5 Reasons You Didn’t See Spike Lee’s Film – Oldboy


  1. You’ve never heard of it. When I saw it there were only three other people in the theater!
  2. You didn’t know Spike Lee was the director or you did know and didn’t give a shit.
  3. You didn’t see Spike Lee’s interview with Oprah. Had you seen it there’s a possibility that you would of been interested. It’s what got me to the theater.
  4. You’re not a fan of Josh Brolin. I admit he was not the best choice for the lead, but he did well enough.
  5. You hate violence on the big screen. (sissy)

Oldboy is described as a provocative, visceral thriller that follows the story of an advertising executive who is abruptly kidnapped and held hostage for 20 years in solitary confinement, but that description leaves out so many details. This movie has tons of twists and sick turns that will leave you mentally disturbed after watching. I describe it as a mindfuck!

Oldboy is also a remake of the 2003 South Korean film, Oldeuboi. I have not seen Oldeuboi, but since seeing Spike Lee’s version my interest in piqued. Spike’s version is catching hell from both critics and casual movie goers, but I loved it and I need to see it again to make sense of all the madness.


Top Story – Taiwan: Where a Nigger Can Be King

This image has gone viral! It is a photo of a real hip hop clothing store in Taiwan. I have learned that because of their understanding of hip hop music and culture that NIGGER is commonly used when referring to Black people. They mean no harm, they are simply ignorant to what the word NIGGER means and represents. However, this sign should be changed.

If you would like to send an email to the store regarding the inappropriateness of the name, please use this email address provided by a friend of mine who is currently living in Taiwan – mix_style05@yahoo.com. This may or may not be a direct┬ácontact to the owner. Nevertheless, please be courteous when trying to get your respective points across.
